Carnival Ride

(Tracy Stark)
Carnival Ride

Funny how I ended up on this rollercoaster ride
Maybe I shouldn’t have stood in the line and paid my fare
But I just wanted to see the view from where you stand
And scream with my hands up in the air

My code has been broken - The light’s already been lit
With a layer of smoke hovering over the pieces that just don’t fit

Cause you creep onto my page
In more than routine ways
Guess I’ll throw my heart to the gods
And let ‘em decide my fate

Funny how I ended up on this surreal flight
Yet here I am in the co-pilot’s chair
And everything’s on automatic and it should be a smooth ride
And I’m trying to land the plane but I can’t
Cause nothing’s clear here

Your imprint’s right where you left it
That’s a choice I’ve made
But for every time you wanna take me out dancing
The band has got to be paid

Cause you creep onto my page
In more than routine ways
Guess I’ll throw my heart to the gods
And then just walk away

Let me hear you say it - I need you now - Don’t back away
Teach me the rules - teach me your game baby
I wanna play I wanna play I wanna play I wanna play I wanna play
Let’s play

It’s not funny anymore - this feeling inside
This carnival ride is flying me too fast
But if I play it safer - would there be a way to forgive myself
For letting this pass

Lines were drawn - Lines were erased
Now we’re walking around trying to find us some new ones
And I’ve got a blindfold on my face

CHORUS
